It seems we are in front of a mystery whose answer only Mr Raikkonen I'm sure knows, no matter what he says...

Citroen boss Olivier Quesnel when questioned about his drivers on WRC Radio. "Ogier has shown on gravel that he is up there with the best but he still needs to learn on tarmac and on unique events like Wales. I hope that next year, we will have Loeb, Sordo and Ogier." Quesnel adds that Loeb hasn't yet confirmed he wants to continue next year but states; "I hope he will stay. He can stay for the next 20 years if he wants to!"

what happens to Kimi then ... firstly the 3 car thing came up, now again saying names of these drivers ... :huh: :huh: :huh:


Hello Saif :wave:

It starts looking like Kimi won't be in WRC next year :(

If you think about it, the most stupid thing Red Bull could do would be to announce Kimi at this point of the season when they are fighting for the championship?

Or... maybe Loeb is retiring and Kimi is taking his place :shhh:

Oh God, numerous different explanations :lol:

The BOOK of MYSTERY

Theory no.1: Kimi wants to continue Rallye. He spoke with Mäkkinen if he could join his squad. Quesnel knows about his plans.
Theory no.2: Kimi wants to continue Rallye. But Quesnel and Citroen plan just a three car team next year,with their best drivers atm leaving Kimi without a seat.
Theory no.3: Kimi doesn´t know yet what he´s going to make. RBR closed the doors. Quesnel too. Not many options left.
Theory no.4: Kimi doesn´t know yet what he´s going to make. Quesnel closed the doors. RBR hasn´t made their mind up till 100%.
Theory no.5: Kimi doesn´t know yet what he´s going to make. Contacts to Sauber, Mercedes ?!
Theory no.6: Kimi already decided about his future. He wants to come back to F1. Which team, he hasn´t many options.
Theory no.7: Kimi already decided about his future. He wants to come back to F1. RBR just play hide&seek.
Theory no.8: Kimi switches to Nascar, Moto GP etc


Choose Kimbo :p
GOODBYE KIMI

For me it's not something suspicious. Of course he talks about these 3 drivers because they are Citroen drivers, Kimi is in the Junior Team because of RedBull sponsorship.
There's no need for Quesnel to talk about Kimi in next year plans, for now he has a 1 year deal with RedBull.

Old news from February, Aftonbladet:

RED BULL OPENS THE DOOR TO F1 FOR RÄIKKÖNEN

Will Kimi be in F1 in 2011? In Red Bull?

– That is absolutely not a dumb idea, Helmut Marko says.

– He has a contract with Red Bull so let's see how things develop. We are a big family, Red Bull, where the most is possible, Helmut Marko said.

– Let's see how it goes in WRC, how he feels after the season. But it's absolutely not a bad idea, if I can express myself that way, Helmut Marko said.

Räikkönen: No negotiations for future

Kimi Räikkönen, who moved from F1 to rally this season, has not yet decided what he's going to do next year.

In the beginning of the year Räikkönen said that he would decide at midseason whether he wants to continue his rally career or go back to F1.

- I think there's still time. I myself haven't decided anything yet. Let's see what happens, Räikkönen said mysteriously to MTV3.

Räikkönen drives rally with Citroen machinery and is sponsored by Red Bull. But Kimi hasn't negotiated about a seat with the Red Bull team which has been strong this season.

- I've negotiated with nobody. Let's just drive rally now.

On Thursday Red Bull team boss Christian Horner implied that Räikkönen is not about to move to his F1 team for next year.

It's like Kimi is standing still in time and all the world is passing him by. :(

Even if he negotiated would he say it clear? I don't think so. He should know that there isn't much time left! LOL With that "let's drive rally now" sentence he clearly cuts the conversation as if he didn't want to say anything.

It's like last year when he kept telling that he has a contract with Ferrari and they kept telling that Kimi and Massa are their drivers for 2010...

Theorie no.5 seems close :lol:

BUT Theorie no.11: Kimi doesn´t know yet what he´s going to make. He HAS time. HAS he? How does he know if he doesn´t talk with teams?? :zz:

reminds me of the mysterious Ferrari time :n

... @sleenster: +1!!

Thanks Dracaena :hug:

It only makes me more and more sure that it's going to be Red Bull. If he hasn't negotiated with anyone it also means he has something already negotiated - like Red Bull. Remember how Mr. Turrini said straight away that Kimi has a long contract with Red Bull and he will be in F1 next season - in Red Bull.
